"Browse All Artists with Recordings in the Live Music Archive"
-This view shows all artists, and when you click on an artist, a listing of all their shows appears (you can then sort, etc.)

"Visit All Artists' Collection Pages in the Live Music Archive"?
-this view shows all artists, and when you click on artist you are taken to the "artist collection" link. When you click on this link, you are then within the collection for that artist, but then will need to do something like list by date, etc. Also note that on this artist "main collection" page, you see top downloads, staff picks, spotlight item, recent shows reviewed, etc. I suspect that many folks complaining about the new site design have not fully explored the "collection" page. Yes, when you simply browse bands with recordings, you simply pull up a massive list of shows that may be overwhelming. But the "collection" page is a more organized approach, and from here you can list shows by year, by rating, by addition date, or other factors.

This difference is not that important for many of the bands listed (particularly if they have only a few shows). But some band collections have more information on their collection page than others. See for example String Cheese Incident or Grateful Dead.
